With Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez likely to leave this summer, Federico Macheda has insisted he has no intention of leaving any time soon.
After hailing his brilliant and important goals against Villa and Sunderland, he claimed that United were the best in the World and he hoped to stay for a long time.
“My last two and a half months have been amazing, to score goals against Aston Villa and Sunderland was wonderful,” said Macheda. “My future? I hope to stay with Manchester United for a long time. We are the best team in the world.”
Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito has voiced his unhappiness with Macheda leaving their youth system for United, something which is allowed to happen because of insufficient regulations in Italy concerning their young players.
“Lotito? To him and to others, who can only criticize, I will not even respond,” Macheda added. “But I still love Lazio. I am happy they won the Coppa Italia.”
